I think there's two large groupings here -- "supernatural species" and "alien species." Although a few of the Lovecraftian ones, like the Mi-Go, may be hard to pigeonhole in either side.

While there is a qualitative difference from a narrative perspective, if you look at how magic is described, you can see how it's just algorithms for manipulating energy that most people cannot even begin to percieve, just like High Energy Physics... :D

Spoken to Branwen, she'd like references on the wiki to her previous stories under Dr. Bender to be listed under her current name.

Updated TimelineX, unless we want to make another, main timeline page...

Since we already call it the "Official Timeline" on "Timelines"...

Any confirmation on "The Island of Dr. DNA" having events in July 1999? I thought it was "Backside of Paradise", but no, I read 1998 as 1999 there...

March 10th, 2000
The Brennan Residence, Paradise Island

Bile rose in Nick's throat and the world spun slowly for a moment. Yesterday it had been late July and 1998. And he had been human. "We were alerted by the Nicaraguan government that they suspected Dr. DNA had set up shop in the archipelago. We were to come in, scout and discover the situation and if we could free hostages or lay hands on him to do so, otherwise report back and spear head a larger force."


From the other dates given:
* February 22nd, 1999: Martin shows video of Heather Royce and Rebecca to Lord Paramount, gets go-ahead on project.
* June 28th, 1999: Martin shows off Nick as he's developing to Heather.
* Nick Brennan wakes up March 10, 2000, as an Animan. Fuzzy memory? It happens

... the process is said to take "about a year", and Dr. DNA would need time to set up in his new location, so Nick's team was likely to have been bushwacked some time April-June 1999.

That's fine, we can do the change. It would be nice if the stories on the site were changed too, so it is all consistent. Otherwise it can get confusing for the readers. Although we can keep a few redirects around, and perhaps a mention in the main page to the tune that "Branwen in the past used Dr. Bender as a pen name."

To be clear: should we change "Dr. Bender" to "Branwen," "Branwen Bender" or "Branwen Gillen"?

Dr. Bender should be listed under "Branwen". You can most definitely mention her other pseudonyms. The site now lists all of the "Bender" works as those written by "Branwen", so it should be a lot easier to dissuade confusion.

OK, I'm going to tackle it.
(edit)
And... it's done, I think. There may be things still to be fixed, such as broken outside links and incorrect gender pronouns scattered about. I note that BigCloset, Fictionmania and DeviantArt still list Branwen as "Dr. Bender" -- and I assume so does Sapphire's Place, but the site has been unreachable since yesterday at least.

Move "Totem" to "Charles Lodgeman", because all adults are listed under their adult names, not their codenames?

Also Charles, not Charlie, because the latter is the one in older use?

Makes sense, though by Gen 2, many of the Gen 1 characters might be adults. "Totem" to be kept as a redirect?
